Is She a Daddy's Girl?

My youngest daughter definitely is! She wakes up yelling for Dada, she looks out the window asking for Dada, she carries a photo album around showing me Dada. She loves her Daddy and her Daddy loves her, there is nothing sweeter than that.

To commemorate this love I bought a book for the two of them. It’s called Daddy’s Girl, written by Garrison Keillor. It talks about a chubby legged, banana loving little girl whose Daddy is telling her how much he loves her and not to forget him when she’s older. I find it to be similar to Love You Forever but obviously for daddies and daughters. My husband read it tonight at bedtime and while it is very humorous and cute it is also sweet and endearing. He was choked up by the end of the book. I highly recommend this book for the Daddy’s out there with little princesses of their own.

Excerpt from book
This is a dance that we used to do
Before I knew there was a You
I don’t think much about long ago,
Oh baby, ‘cause I love you so

  1. Another one to add to my list. I think it will be a good one for D as she is becoming more and more a daddy's girl :)
